  • Recycling Basics


       Everything has basics, rules, considerations even recycling, so if you or a member of your family is still scratching their head over even the most straightforward recycling basics, here are a few hints that I hope you find helpful.

  • Stop stressing!:

    Stop stressing, do what you can and don't worry about the rest. I would rather that you recycle only what you are comfortable with than to get frustrated and decide that recycling is just too much trouble. Every little bit counts! Recycling is not about all or nothing.


  • Keep in mind:

    Keep in mind that recycling includes more than just the typical food cans, soda cans, and bottles. Every time that you donate your cans or have a yard sale, you are recycling.


  • Practice makes perfect:

    we aren't really going for perfect, but the more you do it, the more naturally it will come to you. Just keep trying and before you know it, you won't even consciously think about it, you'll just do it.
  • One person CAN make a difference:

    One person CAN make a difference, Every little bit counts.
  • K.I.S.S:

    K.I.S.S, Keep It Simple Silly. You don't have to invest all sorts of money for special bins or fancy sorting containers. You simply can purchase a cheap second garbage can (a green one) and you can use it for any item that can be recycled. Of course, if you would like to buy special bins and containers, they are definitely available everywhere.
